Looking ahead to 2017

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our Supporters, Members and Friends! Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to Lives of the First World War over the past year, and for helping us to remember the toil and sacrifice of men and women from across the British Empire and Commonwealth.

 

We need your help in 2017 to build the permanent digital memorial even further, so please continue to share your stories and images with us. Next year is the UK-India Year of Culture and we are keen to highlight First World War stories of Indian servicemen and women and civilians. In addition we will be marking 100 years since key moments and events of 1917, which include the following:
